Zlatan Ibrahimovic marked his LA Galaxy debut with a match-winning cameo as his side came from 3-0 down to beat new boys Los Angeles FC.
Galaxy, who had scored three goals in their first three games without Ibrahimovic, scored three in the 20 minutes he was on the field to rally past the Los Angeles Football Club 4-3. And Ibrahimovic had two of them, the first an improbable score-tying 40-yard volley and the second a game-winning header 10 seconds into stoppage time.
Ibrahimovic, the 36 year old who hadn't played since going 45 minutes for Manchester United more than three months ago and looked winded and awkward on his first couple of touches. So the third time he got the ball he dispensed with dribbling and shot from distance, collecting a loose ball on a big bounce and driving a hard shot over goalkeeper Tyler Miller to tie the score in the 77th minute.
Ibrahimovic ripped his jersey off and danced the 40 yards to the goal line where he was engulfed by his teammates, earning a yellow card for excessive celebration. He wasn't done this time though. Ten seconds into stoppage time, he split two defenders and beat Miller to an Ashley Cole cross, heading in the winning goal. All in a day's work for a man like Zlatan.
